Pushover is a service for receiving notifications on Android and iOS devices.

This plugin forwards to your Pushover devices any messages received in Adium while your account is away and/or your screen is locked.

To get started:

  1. Install the Pushover Android or iOS client and create a Pushover account.
  2. Install this Adium plugin by clicking Install on the right.
  3. Open Adium preferences and click on the Events tab.
  4. Double click on "Message Received" and then click the "+" button at the bottom of the preferences window.
  5. Select "Forward to Pushover" from the "Action" drop down.
  6. Enter your Pushover user key (viewable at or from the settings of the client on your phone) and optional device name.
  7. Check "Away" and/or "Screen is locked".
  8. Click Ok.

Great work man, thanks a lot for this plugin! It works beautifully :)

Every time a new message comes in, Pushover sends it successfully...however they are all duplicated. Is there a reason for this? Only happens with this plug-in so I can't blame the Pushover app itself with everything else I have setup. But with Adium's plug-in, all messages come in x2.

I'm not seeing this problem, do you have two events sending notifications, or two notifications set for a single event?

I'm also seeing the same issue like bbinder: all notifications are duplicated. This means, I get the push notification twice, and I see it twice in Pushover. I'm 100% sure that I've only configured one single event. No other app is doing this.

The plugin does not work on the last adium version

Uninstall Adium and remove configuration on "Library/Application Support" solve the problem.

I have Adium 1.5.10 (5/19/14). I installed the "Pushover" app on my Android phone (4.4.2). When I attempt to "Forward to Pushover" per these instructions, the option is not listed in the dropdown. I also uninstalled Adium and removed the Adium folder from the "Library/Application Support". The Push option is still not available. Am I doing something wrong? Thank you!
